Meet Karen

I cared for both grandmother's in their last years and have always enjoyed being around seniors. I had the rare privilege as a child of having my great grandmother live with us for a while and she was such a joy, despite having some health issues, such as some dementia, hearing loss and needing physical assistance. I've always enjoyed hearing stories about the "good old days" and seeing a senior's face light up telling a story, even if I've already heard it 10 times.

I cared for an amazing 60-year-old Down's syndrome lady in my home from May 2009-Aug. 2011 with full state certifications for training; state-inspected monthly for maintaining a safe, clean home environment; background checks; drug screening; CPR & First Aid; clean driving record; classes and training seminars for proper teaching methods for life skills, simple tasks, learning alphabet, etc.

From summer 2008- until late 2009 I spent Monday through Friday with an 89-year-old lady who'd taken a few tumbles and was starting to get a bit forgetful. I made sure you took her proper medications at the right times, kept her house clean and little vegetable garden tended and front porch swept.
